Due to COVID-19 and the new social distancing requirements we have had to change our delivery for First Aid. There is now a requirement to complete an online pre-course component. Cut-off for completion of the online component is 48hrs prior to the course. This is mandatory!
Once you have enrolled, an email will be sent to you with 48hrs with instructions on how to access and complete the online component.
For the purpose of social distancing, on the day the course will be run in 2 sessions (am and pm). An SMS will be sent 24hrs prior the course to notify you which session you are required to attend.
